, and inherited the big deficit from president bush. over the next three years president obama cut the deficit. he cut it by $200 billion just from last year to this year. so the deficit isn't growing. it's shrinking by a lot. seriously the folks at investor's business daily calculated that the deficit is falling faster than at any time since the end of the second world war. the deficit is falling so fast it might not be able to fall any faster without sending us back into recession. when president obama started, the deficit equalled 10% of the whole economy and now it equals just 7%. so go ahead, boggle your uncle's mind with this chart. the bars below zero represent years when the deficit grew. these bars above zero represent years when the deficit shrunk. we're here right now in the deficit shrunk portion of the chart. the point of the shrinkingest shrinking on the whole chart back to 1950. when somebody stops inevitably nattering about the fiscal cliff and the skyrocketing deficit, they don't know what they're
? president obama in the third debate with mitt romney promising to sequester those across the board cuts to spending to kick in january 1st will not happen. and to avoid the fiscal cliff, sequestration is on the table, and some think-- and okay, james, so, 500 billion dollars in defense already built in to cut. then sequester would cut another 500 billion over ten years, and why should republicans go along with that? >> because, this is really their only leverage on president obama, and i think that as congressman jordan has said, the only thing worse than a defense cut is no cut at all. what you get with the sequester is defense, but also cuts in the social-- >> another 500 billion dollars in domestic discretionary, too. >> right, and it adds up to about 100 billion in 2013. i think you will find that president obama will go a long way to avoid those roughly 44 billion in cuts this year, to social programs and i think if you want to get a deal out of him with meaningful reform on spending or tacks, this is, this is the key leverage point and if it happens, it happens. >> and you get som
is that they are doing precisely what the people who elected them with some do which was several back all obama initiatives, to cut spending, a lot of them doubt that the debt ceiling should not be increased under any circumstances, and to that degree they feel like that was a failure. but, no, they basically believe that their job is first to obstruct barack obama and then once there is a republican president in place to pass those initiatives that create a better business climate, more and more deregulation, the funding of programs that have never quite been near and dear to them. yes. i think that they do believe. and, of course, after you flash toward a bit, i expect to will talks about the debt ceiling fiasco of 2011, but after that summer when we were taken to the brink of fiscal clef, we are about to see again, the thinking on the part of the house republican leaders was, well, you know, maybe your tea party freshmen will go home, he yelled at by their constituents and realized in the you know, maybe compromise is not such a bad thing. the opposite occurred. they went home and the people

. >> reporter: during the campaign season, president obama visited college campuses, with a big goal. he wants to cut the growth of tuition prices in half over the next decade. to do it, he'll have to curb a steady upward trend that spans over several decades. just this year, in-state tuition for public colleges is up by almost 5%. for two-year colleges, in-state tuition jumped almost 6%. the average sticker price for private colleges this year is up by about 4% from last year. the predent has proposed controlling tuition growth by expanding a few federal programs like some student loans and work study programs, but reducing those funds for colleges and universities that raise tuition too much and too fast. >> right now the federal government, just this past year, gave out $187 billion in federal financial aid and for the most part that was without strings attached to it and the president is proposing to take a small percentage of those dollars and try to leverage them to go to schools that provide good value for students. >> reporter: but this proposal wouldn't affect most federal education d

look at president obama's proposed spending cuts, a lot of them are leisure. they're cuts in there, for example, that are already agreed upon. in other words, we already have. so you can't really count those. there are other things he called spending cuts which are for wars we're not going to fight. he's going to save a trillion dollars not fighting wars that we're not going to fight anyway. so that's like me saying i'm going to give you a trillion dollars, no, i'm not, and then imagining that somehow i've got that trillion in my pocket all of a sudden. it's not real money. most of the money is coming from tax cuts, from letting the tax cuts expire. that's real money. the spending cuts, we really haven't seen yet. that's what republicans are looking for, is president obama going to tackle entitlement reform? that's where the real money is. >> and do you see -- does it seem as though there really is light at the end of the tunnel, that both sides are working really hard to beat this deadline, it's not just hyperbole but a real commitment to come to terms and answer to americans who
up, i think the argument that obama will have to essentially extend the tax cuts as is come from of the 20 d's who are up, many of them in quite red states and the r's -- either very strong candidates because they all survived in 2008 and got elected against the obama landslide that year. whereas obama agreed to continue the tax cuts because he feared his own reelection, this time it is the democrats in the senate in a similar position obama was. >> thank you very much. i believe there are two narratives and it seems like both are legitimate in their own way. but there is also the question of political psychology. and it is clear some republicans, some moderate republicans, some neo- conservatives, some people who were advisers to governor romney, that they do think that president obama got a mandate and suggest the republicans make major concessions. to what extent in your conversation with house republicans, to what extent this feeling is kind of common among rank and file members? >> the cheerful news from the taxpayer perspective is that the republicans are not at all spooked
to raise taxes the president obama has put forward one dime of spendin cuts even accept. or how the reform entitlements, to avoid a debt crisis. gei: something else, criticizing grover norquist for his note tax edge. this would point to a fracturing of the republican party in terms of its support for not raising taxes. what do you make of this? does this come as news to you, will this change the face of the republican party? >> points to the fact there's so much pressure here on republicans. the media putting pressure on republicans, completely misplaced. we have a spending problem. no one is focusing on cutting spending. that will continue until john boehner or somebody else says we're not talking about tax increases so we start talking about cutting spending. gerri: obamacare is an expensive entitlement that is brand new and john boehner, speaker of the house, wrote this, we can't afford it. we can't afford to leave it intact. the law has to stay on the table as both parties discuss ways to solve the nation's massive debt challenge. it haseen put on the table is yet another king, somethi
